A Westside Colorado Springs native, Tracy has been sewing since she was a teenager. The pandemic sent her back to the machine making masks for friends and family. She soon branched out from the clothing she normally sewed into making purses. She now has her own tiny sewing business, Kiowas Street Creations, which she runs while not pampering her pirate kitty, Mika.
